Rest in Peace, little Space Bat dude

My Mister and I have been following the news about the now-famous free tail bat who accompanied space shuttle Discovery on its most recent launch. Tragically, NASA reports that Space Bat "likely perished quickly during Discovery’s climb into orbit."

You'll find more details and photos at, and a touching tribute to Space Bat on the Space Bat Memorial page.

In the words of an unknown forum poster at, "Damnit, I promised I wouldn't cry".
